Environmental awareness is directly associated with social responsibility. The Dentista Verde can make volunteers of the project Dentista do Bem and the entire odontological community notice the importance of the environment issues. Therefore, TdB under voluntary environmental consulting of the environmentalist Fábio Feldmann developed the Manual of Dentista Verde.
Our challenge with the publishing is to encourage the critical look, capable of questioning old habits, finding clever ways to connect us with the environment around, besidades reducing the environmental impact of our professional activity.
Another goal of this project is to encourage dentists to take advantage of their position as opinion makers to influence the patient on the importance of selective collection. He will even encourage the practice in their own office, collecting empty tubes of toothpaste and worn-out tooth brushes.
The result of the first collection was destined for the construction of a work of art made by the volunteer painter Vik Muniz to stimulate reflection of the society over the litter production.
